Blurb: Killian walked into my new voodoo shop late one night with an urgent request – he needed me to heal his friend. Only I know absolutely nothing about voodoo, or healing. I’m just trying to start a new life with what little family I have left after my dream of becoming a star on Broadway went up in flames.
At first glance, he was an average looking guy with a European flair. Nothing outside the ordinary in the city of New Orleans. But despite his nerdy-boy attire, Killian was most definitely all man. And as his black eyes made their way up my body to my face, the look reflected within them wasn’t the least bit tame.
More like predatory…
I expected her to cast me down the moment I walked through her door. But I had no choice. One of my own was dying from a witch’s curse, and only another witch could undo the spell. However, Lizzy was not what I’d expected to find. Stunned by her beauty and overwhelmed by her scent, I burned with thirst until the blood raced through my veins and my body tightened with need.
But with one taste, she calmed the beast within me as the truth flooded my wicked soul. The witch is MINE. She is the pulse that feeds my immortal life and the bearer of my death. Taking Lizzy as my mate will bring about the end of my coven’s uneasy truce with the witches.
Leaving her will mean my demise…
My name is Killian Rice, and I am a vampire. Come Into The Dark with this new series by L.E. Wilson, and enter her Deathless Night. A world of immortals with only one weakness: The witches who can destroy us…
I wanted to like this book it started off well and I was intrigued by the dynamics between the vampires and witches however this book gave little time to character development. It felt like a setup for a bigger story with little time spent on the characters it was supposed to focus on. There are many steamy scenes between our characters and while I am a big fan of sexual interactions between main characters there needs to be more to a developing relationship than sex.
There was no resolution to the mystery in the book nor any hint as to who was the villain. A story needs some resolution to provide an enjoyable reading experience. This is not a book I would recommend and I have no interest in following on with the series.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
